Chicken Soulvaki Pita

Nutrition per Pita Pocket: Weight Watchers Points + 6 ~ Calories 228.1 ~ Fat 2.0 g ~ Carbs 26.4 g ~ Fiber 6.2 g ~ Protein 29.2 g

A Summer Staple that is quick, easy, light, refreshing and very Healthy!  This course consists of Chicken Soulvaki garnished with vegetables of your choice.  I like using sliced cucumber,  tomatoes, red onions, red pepper, green pepper and mixed lettuces topped off with  tzatziki sauce stuffed in a lightly baked pita. If you have leftover veggies, serve it as a small side salad.    For my 1 point Tzatziki sauce recipe click here.   Cut up a lemon and squeeze on top for a refreshing lemony taste.   Leftovers are great for lunch the next day.  If you are prepping this in advance:  Cook the chicken and store in the fridge, cut up the veggies in advance and store in a large ziplock bag with a paper towel in it to absorb any excess water.  The day that you want to serve microwave the chicken and pop the pita in the toaster oven.  You may want to double to Tzatziki sauce if your family likes to dip their veggies in it like mine do. My 3 year old son loves the Tzatziki sauce…if only I can get him to pronounce it correctly 🙂  Read More…
